My time at Kennedy Junior High was very insightful. I learned many things that prepared me for high school. Except for certain teachers, the educational quality was downright amazing. This school deserves to be #1 and all the hardworking students and teachers deserve to be commended for their exellence and service to the community.

So I really loved Kennedy Junior High. I think that Kennedy is a great place because of the reason that they push you hard as if you were a high schooler and you would be ready for high school in no time. At Kennedy the about of work they make you do is tremendous, but as you get used to it, you will love Kennedy. If you are a kid who usually gets bad grades then Kennedy Junior High is the best place for you. Also, if you are a kid who always gets straight A's then Kennedy will be a great place for since they are going to push you even harder to get all of the students ready for high school. Kennedy is going to be hard for you if you are the goofy kid who does not do good at school. Also, if you are late to class, they wouldn't mark you tardy if you have a great, reasonable explanation for being late. In addition, at Kennedy, all the classes are not far away from each other, so you would not have to worry a lot about being tardy. At Kennedy, the test scores are really great.
It is a good school. I hope there are more afterschool activities like tennis club. Overall focused on academics and has good kids. Teachers are good. Sometimes hard to schedule the teacher conference during the conference day since the spot fills up so quickly. Science or math clubs are difficult to get in. If you want to get in there are several tests and only previously prepared kids can get in.
